Investigative Reporters & Editors is establishing the IRE Ring of Honor, a new fundraising initiative celebrating members who have made a significant contribution to the organization and to investigative journalism.
Nominations to the Ring of Honor can be made in tribute to current or retired IRE members or in memoriam to deceased members.
It’s a great way for individuals or a group of people to thank a friend or colleague for their service while also paying it forward by raising money for IRE fellowships.
Here’s how it works: To nominate a person to the Ring of Honor, fill out a short nomination form available under the "Donate" link on the IRE website. The nomination requires approval of the IRE Board of Directors.
If the nomination is approved, the nominating person or group must raise a minimum of $2,500 in the name of the person to be honored. Once that minimum is raised, IRE will add the person’s name to the Ring of Honor and memorialize it on the IRE website and in other IRE materials. The names of the new honorees will be announced at the next IRE conference.
Donors still will be able to add to the fund in the honoree’s name after they have been inducted to help grow the IRE Ring of Honor fellowship fund.
The fund for fellowships will allow qualified recipients to access IRE benefits, such as attending conferences, participating in training and networking with other investigative journalists.
